These are not only LiveCams, but a sophisticated system, thanks to the technology of Canon, that allows you to possess the position of the cameras with every browser (Java compatible). You too can admire the view from Mayor Rutelli's balcony and enjoy seeing the Roman Forum, the Imperial Forums, Saint Peter in Vatican, all the way to the Coliseum. One can also rotate the telecameras and zoom on particular areas for a few seconds.
